Taraba State Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Hajiya Zainab Isah, has urged corps members to use skills acquired during the orientation course to create jobs in their host communities.
She gave the advice during the closing ceremony of 2012 Batch ‘B’ orientation course in Jalingo, Taraba State. She said with the skill acquisition programme, corps members should develop entrepreneur spirit geared towards national development.
She said: “Let me use this medium to make it clear to you that national service is not mere formality or fulfilling righteousness, but a duty.
“Hence, you must strive to consciously look at ways you will deploy the knowledge you had garnered in your respective institutions of learning and the skills you acquired to make positive impact that will bring about the development.”
